Talk about your concerns and feelings and make a decision that helps fulfill your needs in the year ahead. You have a lot of potential; you just need to make the moves to unlock it. Don’t hesitate to branch out and take some chances. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Question beliefs that are not meeting your expectations and challenge what you are not satisfied with in your life. Change is brewing, and it must not be ignored. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Visiting new places and meeting new people will broaden your perspective and help you gain greater confidence as you venture down a new path. Favorable changes at home will unfold. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Put a little force behind whatever you decide to do. What you learn will help you make valuable assessments that will lead to improvements in your home and work lives. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Take responsibility for a touchy situation and show everyone what you are able to do. Don’t let opposition cloud your vision; you’ve got the skills to turn the ship around. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t let pending issues get you down. Step up and take care of anything that is costing you emotionally, financially or physically. Your success will be impressive. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Push to make the changes that will improve your position and financial future. Deals can be made and contracts signed during this cycle. Don’t let an emotional matter stand in your way. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t leave anything to chance. Discuss important matters thoroughly before you make a decision. Moderation will be necessary to avoid a sticky situation. Don’t fold under pressure. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Focus on self-improvement rather than trying to change others. Discipline and hard work will bring you praise and greater opportunities. Take time to nurture important relationships. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be open to suggestions and welcome any assistance that’s offered. Working with others will ensure that you get things done on time. A change in your social life will do you good. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Take a unique approach, and you will attract interest. Concentrate on the relationships you enjoy and consider how you can use these connections to the max. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Deal cautiously with matters pertaining to your health and family life. Added pressure is likely to lead to arguments if you cannot come to an agreement. Prepare to modify your plans. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t back down if you’re up against a wall. If you know what’s required to get something done, don’t hesitate to take charge. A relationship will undergo some duress. Show compassion, but don’t be gullible.
